After a week away, first thing I did when I came back was to look for some updates (drivers, etc.) and while during that, I discovered two interesting web pages. First of all, I've switched to a new visual style from Studio28. Excellent work, finally something else than the "Metallic Shades" style I've been using for years. Second, I found out that the Athlon 64's Cool'n'Quiet technology needs a driver in order to work under WindowsXP. It can be found here and slows down my 3500+ (2.2 clock) to 1.8 and 1 depending on system load. AMD should inform people better about what features of their processor needs drivers, as they did with the NX/XD bit and SP2.
